MSA is pleased to offer an opportunity to openly discuss your fleet and DOT concerns with a panel of Federal and State agency experts. Panel members include individuals from Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Minnesota State Patrol and Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT). Please bring your questions to receive specific answers about how to improve outcomes with your fleet.

FMCSA discussing:
  • As of January 6th, 2020 FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is now fully operational, and mandatory use is now in effect.
  • How to conduct queries to access a driver’s Clearinghouse record, after obtaining the driver’s consent and before hiring any CDL driver.
  • Designating a consortium/third-party administrator (C/TPA), if you work with one, which enables your C/TPA to access the Clearinghouse on your behalf. This is a requirement of all owner-operators.
  • Purchasing a query plan, which must be in place before you, or your designated C/TPA, can conduct queries.
  • Reporting violations of FMCSA’s drug and alcohol testing program.

State Trooper discussing:
  • Clarification on construction-specific exemptions
  • Intra vs. Interstate Hours of Service (HOS)
  • What to expect during a roadside or scale inspection
  • Load securement and other contractor-specific fleet risk
